Have you or a loved one experienced hearing loss after serving in the military between 2003 and 2015? Military personnel that used the 3M™ Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs (CAEv2) during training or deployment and have hearing loss may be eligible to file a claim for compensation. Our legal team at Harman Law Firm can help those who served in the military that have been harmed by 3M military earplugs seek compensation for their injuries.

In July 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice made an announcement regarding the 3M™ Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs (CAEv2). 3M Company, the exclusive maker of the CAEv2, had agreed to pay $9.1 million in claims to military personnel who have experienced hearing loss or hearing damage. These defective earplugs are alleged to have not provided adequate protection for personnel in certain branches of the military, exposing soldiers to the danger of hearing loss.

Do You Have Permanent Hearing Loss?

Those eligible to file a claim to receive compensation from 3M Company have experienced hearing damage due to the use of 3M’s CAEv2. These earplugs have been found to not provide the noise cancellation needed to prevent certain hearing damage during use. If you have experienced or have been diagnosed with partial or complete hearing loss, or you suffer from tinnitus (ringing in the ear) after serving in the military between 2003-2015, you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation.

The problem with the 3M™ Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs is that they did not perform correctly. It is believed the earplugs were designed to be too short to effectively protect soldiers from hearing damage. Due to their design, 3M’s earplugs could loosen, allowing dangerous exposure to loud noise that could harm hearing capabilities. After many complaints of hearing loss and damage occurred with soldiers using theses defective ear plugs, 3M Company agreed to pay for damages.
